Melodifestivalen 2018: Listen to the Semi-Final 1 snippets!

It’s that time of year again, where we can FINALLY get a sneak peak of what’s to come in arguably the most hyped national selection of the year. Yes, it’s Melfest time! Not long ago, the snippets for the first semi-final were released.

The first semi-final takes place this weekend in Karlstad, and we had previously reported, it’s David Lindgren who is taking on the hosting role once again, but this time he will be on stage solo.

Competing this week is:

  • Sigrid Bernson – Patrick Swayze

  • John Lundvik – My Turn

  • Renaida – All the Feels

  • Edward Blom – Livet på en pinne

  • Kikki Danielsson – Osby Tennessee

  • Kamferdrops – Solen lever kvar hos dig

  • Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off

One minute snippets of the songs are available to listen to here, and at 19:00 CET, the clips of the rehearsals will be available on SVT Play. Longer snippets of the studio versions of the songs will be released before the show on Saturday at 14:00 CET.

The studio versions of the qualifying songs won’t be released online until the end of the last semi-final, and the non-qualifying songs and the Andra Chansen songs will be released after the semi-finals.
